The History of Age of Empires

You might already know this, but Age of Empires has been around for a long time. Just about 20 years to be precise. In those 20 years a lot has happened; several games, more AoE dedicated forums than we can count, millions of fans, and tons of hours played!

Now as we come up to the 20th anniversary of the original game, and the launch of the Definitive Edition we wanted to take a trip down memory lane and look back at the history of Age of Empires. Want to join us in this nostalgia-filled endeavor? Take a look at the video below.

It’s been so great sharing these games with you for the past 20 years, and we look forward to the next 20 years of Age of Empires!
